I only have a link to the Wii Homebrew Thread on Gaf. They have all the info you could possibly need to set that up, so I don't feel the need to go through it again here. The thread is strictly about Dolphin.

Last time I tried I could launch the system menu. However launching games from the disc channel isn't supported yet, the Mii channel is though.

you need a wii w/ homebrew installed. check programs like superdump and wii dvd dumper. the homebrew thread will probably be more helpful.

Where can you buy Windows 7 for $20? Ultimate Steal used to sell Windows 7 Pro for $30, but the price went up to $65 in January. I was hoping I could get it for free through MSDNAA, but my college only gives it to IT students. :(

Background
Help Klonoa save Phantomile, a land formed by the dreams of its inhabitants, and recently besieged by an unknown evil. Klonoa’s
breathtaking journey takes him through a series of increasingly difficult stages across multiple kingdoms as he strives to save his friends
and homeland. Throughout his quest, Klonoa is aided by his friend Hewpoe, a benevolent spirit who resides in the ring from which Klonoa
is able to fire his Wind Bullet. The Wind Bullet gives Klonoa the ability to grab and inflate his enemies and use them to his advantage.

JADS has submitted all the info I needed to set the guide Klonoa up for him and as you can see, it looks gorgeous. I'm really looking forward to other guides put up from him, he told me he has Zack & Wiki and PN03 in the works :D

You can now see the link to his guide in the post below the OP where guides will be listed.

Yep, pretty much a constant full speed 30fps for me on the gamecube version. I'm up to Death Mountain right now.

Some issues with sound though, and I hear hyrule field is fucked later on. We'll see.

Nah, just being snarky. A lot of PS3 and 360 games aren't HD, which was the joke I was trying to make. Of course running games at 1080p with incredibly high levels of AA and anisotropic filtering will produce a nicer image than the compromises we get with "current gen" visuals.

I'm only half serious, anyway. 360/PS3 games obviously benefit from better textures, shaders, and complex geometry. It's just that the overall IQ often lacks the crisp cleanliness of these Dolphin screens.

Read the second post in the thread lol. Or the third post. I set up a template to follow and JADS was the first user (apart from myself). Hopefully if others join in, we can cover quite a few games.

Resident Evil 4 runs at a perfect 30 fps at 1080p with 4xSSAA.

Sure, fill out the text file i posted (post 2 in the thread) and zip it up with 3 1080p screens in bmp form and 1 1080p screen (preferably without hud aka during a cutscene) for the banner and then post it on megaupload for me in a PM. I'll make the necessary photoshops and hosting additions so that they match up to the guides posted so far. The process went very smoothly with JADS and the results are fantastic. You get to post and I add the link to the game guide list with your name as well.

Jizzzz.

Quick question - should I manually limit my framerate to 30fps for 30fps games, or does the 60fps readout I get simply mean it is running at 'full speed'?

If it's a 30 fps game running at 60 fps, then you will be running at 200% speed.

Some games flip between 30-60 fps depending on scene, such as REmake with with the door opening sequences. With these games you definitely want it set to auto. Some games will run at 15 fps if you limit it to 30, while they run at 30 if you set it to auto. The reverse can happen as well.

The way I was able to do it was to set my Wii up with HBC (which I needed to rip my Wii games anyways) and then download a bootloader that enables you to rip over wifi. Then simple send the browser of your choice to the Wii's IP address, click to download the iso, and wait 3 hours or so :| Only took me two days to rip all the GC games I care about. I just need to spend time getting the games running and looking good. I really want to play Wind Waker again :(

Hey Stallion. Great job on the thread. As someone said, this is the most clear and concise guide around for getting Dolphin up and running. The internet owes you a debt.

I guess it was largely ignored in the other thread, but do you think it might be helpful to people playing the games and making guides to have a link for the game thread index on the dolphin forums? Just a thought. If mentioning it was faux pas than just ignore me.

Background
The story of Killer7 revolves around Harman Smith, a sixty-year-old schizophrenic assassin who is crippled and forever bound to a
wheelchair. Fortunately for his career, he possesses the power of "God-Killer," which renders him invincible and gives him extraordinary
supernatural powers. He is also capable of manifesting his seven alternate personalities into the real world, each with their own weapon
and personal style of killing. This "group" of professional assassins is collectively known as the Killer7 Syndicate. The main antagonist of
Killer7 is Kun Lan, who possesses the "God-Hand." With it, he can transform people into mindless, invisible time-bombs called the Heaven
Smiles, and seeks to wreak havoc across the United States. The US government has called upon the Killer7 to destroy the Heaven Smiles,
take out Kun Lan, and end the threat that surrounds the country.
